First let me say that I am a relative newbie to snort/mysql, but I got my 
setup working without specifying a directory, i.e.:

./configure --with-mysql

The script seemed smart enough to work out where mysql libraries were located.
I f you specify the directory I think that it needs to point to the mysql 
client library.
